Since last ~2 days, YouTube's constantly showing "An error occurred. Please try again later. Read More" message on any video that I try to access on YouTube. Allow me to explain the setup because I strongly think it's dependent on it:- My Modem Connects To Router which creates a Wi-Fi hot-spot. I use a Range Extender to extend the range of the network. My laptop and phone use this extended network to connect to the Internet. Now following are the observations I've made so far.
  1. Any device connected to the extended network show the above error message - I tried using Laptop and also my phone.
  2. I thought that the problem would be with the range extender; but it appears that even on the network of the main router, YouTube does not work (same error message appears).
  3. Surprisingly, though - YouTube works fine on the Desktop that connects to the network of the main router and I can watch videos.
I'm totally unable to figure out what's exactly wrong. I first thought it was some issue with the cookie settings, flash software or javascript; but then found that my Android phone too exhibits the same problem. I've searched almost entire Internet but there's no solution to the issue.

Update: I checked from another android and it offered more surprises. m.youtube.com does not show videos but they play fine on the YouTube App. I'm now wondering if there's anything I need to fix or it's a service issue from YouTube itself. I remember I did not install anything on my phone or laptop that might have caused the issue.

Would really appreciate if anyone can suggest a fix for this problem.

Thanks. I was using Google DNS for quite a long time and then it had issues. I had to switch to default BSNL DNS because that was the only 'fix' offered by the BSNL technicians. Just set my DNS back to Google and will check how it works out. Thanks a lot for your help, @Rajat Motwani !
